The Miami Dolphins are looking at traveling to Cleveland without the services of a banged up Vontae’ Davis. If Davis can’t go, then the Dolphins will turn to either Nolan Carroll or Will Allen. Hopefully the latter. Davis is nursing a leg injury and it is questionable if he will play this Sunday.
Jason Taylor told reporters today that he was not thrilled that his locker room blow up left the locker room. He said it was supposed to be private. Ummmm…it was probably tweeted while he was going off. Taylor also said that he thinks the team is going to fly up Cleveland and “kick somebody’s ass”. Hopefully that means the Browns and not a drunk on the way to the team bus after the game.
Karlos Dansby told the media that he is back to practicing fully and ready to go. Good thing because Peyton Hillis is no slouch running back. In fact, Mike Nolan told his defense not to close their eyes when tackling low. Hillis will jump over low tacklers. This was tweeted by Armando Salguero…figured I should toss out the cite considering he gets so upset when you don’t.
Redzone issues? Well, Anthony Fasano told media that it takes 11 people to make it work. 10 won’t get it done. In my opinion the problem in the redzone is Brandon Marshall. Not because he dropped a touchdown pass but because he continually is getting into Henne’s ear to throw him the ball. There are other players on the field and thus far Henne has gone out of his way to try and force feed TD’s to Marshall.
Two weeks ago Marshall stood on the line calling attention to his one on one coverage from the one yard line. Henne tried to calm him down. The reality is it’s a team effort and while Marshall may not be running off with his mouth yet, inevitably he will. Henne needs to find the open receiver instead of simply looking for Marshall. One on one coverage or not.
After a brief stint in New England after being claimed off waivers from Miami, AJ Edds is back on the free agent market looking for work. The Patriots released the former Dolphins LB today.
